the last 10 years? *grin*
Your advice may be good, but I don't like your attitude.
One of the things I like about Linux is that you are not forced to
buy the latest whiz-bang computer. It runs just fine on old hardware.
Getting it working is half the fun.

The meeting is going to be at our usual virtual hang
I hope to be there.
I don't have a topic yet, I suspect something
natural will emerge.
I don't have a suitable presentation, but I have written something
about my latest Linux project. Maybe it will be a topic.

Your advice is welcome and maybe useful. A few years ago one
of the WLUG memebers (Frank Sweetser?) saved my bacon after
my Idiot Service Provider suddenly decided it would no longer
be convenient for them to continue running a secondary name
server for me. They didn't even reduce my bill by the amount
they had been charging for that service. The price remained
the same, but now it was for extra email addresses that I had not
requested and did not need.
A few years later they quit providing any mailboxes at all.
I think they would really rather just charge me for sending the
invoice. To be fair, that seems to be hard for them.
Frank (?) told me about Hurricane Electric, who run a secondary
name server for free just for good will and advertising.
They are good people, this plug is all I have ever done for them.
